Recently, we decided to migrate to VEE 6.0 as we thought that the application should be fully compatible and no changes in the code was needed. However, part of the application fails. The reason is very simple: with VEE 6.0 you can not execute  a file if the pathfile includes a space. It only gets the path up to the space and then it does not find the file to execute. We have updated to VEE 6.01 but the problem persists. Although we could avoid the problem easily by changing the directory name or including a direct acces to the file, we wander if there is a patch to fix this bug and avoid the "bureaucracy"associated to an application change. </FONT></P><P><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">Thanks</FONT></P><P><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">Angeles</FONT></P></BODY></HTML>
